Publisher's Summary

In war, great commanders lead soldiers into hell to do the impossible.

They were called Easy Company, but their mission was never easy. Immortalized as the Band of Brothers, they suffered huge casualties while liberating Europe in an unparalleled record of bravery under fire. Dick Winters led them through the Battle of the Bulge, the attack on Foy, where Easy Company reached its breaking point, and finally into Germany, by which time each member had been wounded. Outside Munich, they liberated an S.S. death camp and captured Berchtesgaden, Hitler's alpine retreat.

Beyond Band of Brothers is Winters' memoir, based on his wartime diary, but it also includes his comrades' untold stories. Only Winters was present from the activation of Easy Company until the war's end. This is their story, told in his words for the first time.

What the Critics Say

    "Exceptionalism!"

    Not only does this book describe WWII from Winters standpoint, he also goes into depth on how to be a good leader, soldier and most importantly a good person.

    "Great addition to BofB"

    Very well written and read. It's always sad to think that these are the last words to come from such a fine American.

    "Band of Brothers fans should get this!"

    if you were enthralled by Band of Brothers then you owe it to them and yourself to hear the story from those who were actually there.

    "NEVER FORGET THOSE WHO SACRIFICED FOR OUR FREEDOM"

    We are blessed to have the memoirs of Major Dick Winters. Both the book and the audible version are extremely well done. It is very enlightening to anyone who doesn't know or remember World War II. This book is better than Steve Ambrose's "Band of Brothers." I highly recommend it to our military and civilians of today.
